Simple Life : FOOD

     Food is one of life’s most basic and essential material needs. Not so long ago people grew all or most of the food they ate. Today, we have outsourced most food production to global corporations that are more interested in making gain than providing us with healthy food or producing food in a sustainable techniques.

1.GROW AS MUCH OF YOUR OWN FOOD AS YOU CAN: Not everyone can grow all their own food, but everyone can grow some of it, even if it is a herb and lettuce garden on the windowsill. Gardening is an important revolutionary action.

2.THINK ABOUT PLANTING SOME VEGES / FRUIT TREES IN YOUR NATURE STRIP: Look into your assembly regulations about planting up your nature strip. Or just do it. Not only does this provide you with more space to grow your own food, it also gives a message to your community that you care about food production.

3.SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FARMERS’ MARKETS: Most people will not be able to grow all their own fruit and vegetables. Supplement your own food production by supporting local farmers’ markets. Avoid supermarkets as much as possible.

4.THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING IN YOUR BODY: Eat healthy, organic food, and eat moderately. Avoid fatty, artificial, and processed foods.
